There is a scene under that darkness behind your thoughts. The colors, the motions, the shapes, the figures, dancing like you have never seen. Can you perceive it through the small cracking windows in the darkness of the oil, the darkness of the ink of a digital printer, and the darkness of the vinyl? The lines send you a secret invitation, shyly asking each of your brain cells to figure out the marvellous party behind the black curtains. By responding to the surface of various mediums and tiny clues, different depths of imagination and answers are generated in our minds. The response reveals the subtle process of our perception and thoughts to build our own world. As we decipher the codes of meaning, we create the meaning of the codes.

Oil painting covered by water painting. The view is concealed, however, you can see it by your fingers.

Digital printing. The image is hidden behind digital method. The flatten surface is the cue you can reach.

Oil paint covered by vinyl. No windows for your eyes, what does the texture say? The same images behind the darkness or something else?

 

The Calling

Multimedia, Digital printing, silkscreen, 12 x 12 inches

We need you, we need your eagerness on fire. In Taoism, people burn religious papers into ash, vanishing into the air to show their devotion and respect for holy gods, praying for a better life for themselves. The physical turns into the spiritual. It is a tunnel for the helpless to belief. We need you. We need you to be that powerful, the holy one, protecting us for a better life for the people, for millions of families, for the faith, and the dream. We will burn the ritual papers for you, remember you, memorize you, believe in your forever.
